How to solve the most common problems with the display of ergometers (electronic resistance regulation)
No power:
1) Check that the power supply cable is firmly inserted into the bike socket
2) Check with a tester that the power supply emits voltage (usually works from 6 VDC to 9 VDC)
3) Check the cables that connect the display to the bike. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the cables and making sure that all pins are straight (none should be bent) and that the connection is nice and tight.
 
Failed to set resistance or failed to read laps

Nordictrack assistance: cross trainer noises

Noise is one of the most frequently problems affecting cross trainers and it is often difficult to find the solution. In addition to the other recommendations, which you can find in our blog, it is advisable to proceed as follows, if you hear a noise:
Click clack type noise coming from the pedals.
 
To check if the noise depends on the play in the connection of the pedal tubes:
- hold the pedal tube marked with the green arrows in the previous image
- force a lateral movement on the tube marked with the red arrows
- this could cause a noise similar to that heard during training. This problem can be solved by adding washers on the pedal axis.
 
- Check whether by performing the previous test you have a space (marked with the yellow arrow in the image)
- If so, fit thin metal or nylon washers on the pedal axle.
- The minimum number of washers required to reduce the empty space must be added, but it should never be exaggerated otherwise an additional noise may be generated.

Tunturi Platinum support: E1 error due to excessive sensor distance

When the E1 error occurs, check that the speed sensor of the treadmill is not too far from the magnet (2-3 mm max). Then verify that the sensor is working.
Some sensors, such as the one in Tunturi Platinum treadmills, have a double casing, which makes reading more difficult.
Following the instructions below, it is possible to remove a part of the double casing, without risking damage to the sensor, which remains however covered by dust and external agents.

 
1) Open the sensor
2) Identify the lower sensor cover (B in the picture)
3) Cut the front part of the lower cover by removing the excess plastic
4) Reassemble the sensor and fix it
5) Still doesn’t work? Buy a replacement sensor here: http://www.partsfortreadmill.com/parts-for-treadmill/speed-sensor-for-treadmill/
You can buy spare parts (REED sensor and magnet) on our treadmill spare parts shop www.partsfortreadmill.com .

Treadmill safety key

Have you lost the safety key of your treadmill?
There are three types of security keys:
1) external switch
In this case there is a small switch that interrupts the supply circuit, if it is released. A magnet in the safety key keeps the switch pressed.
2) contact
in this case the safety key generates an electrical contact in the console, through the two metal tips that can be seen in the picture, acting as a switch itself.

 
3) magnetic
in this case the switch is on the back of the console and is activated by a magnet in the safety key.


 
There are many different shapes of security keys, some more specific, such as the one shown in the picture
 
If you have lost the security key of your treadmill, you can purchase the replacement on our e-shop http://www.partsfortreadmill.com/parts-for-treadmill/treadmill-safety-key/

Star Gym Treadmill assistance: E1 error for magnetic speed sensor treadmills

E1: when the E1 message appears on the console after about 5-10 seconds, it means that no speed signal has been detected.
Solutions to the problem:
• check that the speed sensor is correctly connected to the control board;
• check the presence of the magnet on the front roller pulley;
• check that the sensor cable is not damaged or there is no damage to the sensor itself;
• check the distance L = about 3mm (see picture) of the sensor from the magnet on the front roller pulley; if sensor iss too far or too close to the pulley may cause error;
• replace the sensor;
if it still doesn’t work check control board, motor, cabling and console.
